Every time you experience a negative reaction to your ex dating, stop and go through the list of reasons you are no longer married. Is it possible you are uncomfortable with the idea of your ex dating because you are stuck and unable to move forward with your life?
Remembering the negative aspects of your marriage can go a long way in helping alleviate any the unpleasant idea of him/her dating again. I’m sure you’ve heard that saying, “The best revenge is living well.” Well, it’s true!
If you have not applied for retirement benefits, but can qualify for them, your ex-spouse can receive benefits on your record if you have been divorced for at least two years.
If your ex-spouse is eligible for retirement benefits on their own record, we will pay that amount first.
Though you may not understand the feelings you are having, they are a natural part of moving on after a divorce.
When you meet someone new, you will have a better perspective on how your ex is feeling about you and the relationship you both once had.2. Most people are puzzled as to why they are jealous of someone they didn’t want in their life any longer. This was YOUR husband or YOUR wife, you expected fidelity, and now it may feel like cheating to see them with someone else.
The benefits do not include any delayed retirement credits your ex-spouse may receive.
If you remarry, you generally cannot collect benefits on your former spouse's record unless your later marriage ends (whether by death, divorce or annulment).
If you file for one benefit, you will be effectively filing for all retirement or spousal benefits If you continue to work while receiving benefits, the retirement benefit earnings limit still applies.
If your ex-spouse will also receive a pension based on work not covered by Social Security, such as government work, their Social Security benefit on your record may be affected.
Note: Your benefit as a divorced spouse is equal to one-half of your ex-spouse's full retirement amount (or disability benefit) if you start receiving benefits at your full retirement age.
If your ex-spouse’s birthday is January 2, 1954 or later, the option to take only one benefit at full retirement age no longer exists.
If your ex-spouse files for one benefit, they will be effectively filing for all retirement or spousal benefits.
Therefore, since I wouldn’t like it, I don’t think I should do it to someone else.
